She She Pop & Their Fathers: Testament

World Stage Production

She She Pop (Germany)
Performed in German with English surtitles

Mirroring the story of King Lear and his daughters, She She Pop members take to the stage with their own aging fathers to enumerate their inheritances and negotiate how power, money, memory and love are passed along across the generations. With the drive of a game show, this heart wrenching and humourous work strives to find the intersections of responsibility and respect between parents and children. She She Pop, based in Berlin and Hamburg, is one of Germany’s most important performance collectives.

When: April 17-20, 2013

Vilanelle & S

Created by José Navas, Vilanelle, a tender solo, sets the stage for S when eight dancers, stunning in their

instruments crafted by Stradivarius. Tickets: $19.50-$34.

Uncanny

The artists in this exhibition have an investigative outlook and continue to be informed by historical process of the
image in a contemporary and thought-provoking way. Sound, Video, Photography and the view’s own memory provide an image-based
platform for exploring the metamorphosis of the uncanny, a term that Sigmund Freud used to describe a psychological feeling
between terror and fascination. The uncanny is supernatural and fascinating leaving us feeling disturbed in a state of wonderment
and fear.

Sweetness of the Work

Sweetness of the Work is part of a collection exploring the possibilities fo crystalline forms in the lace work. In this installation,
Mississauga-based Noelle Hamlyn works with cotton thread embroidered to create web like structures which are then exposed to a saline solution.
This process encourages the formation of crystals. The evapouration rate, sun exposure, temperature, salt type and saturation of the solution
were varied to create this delicate lace form, floating in space. The process, as well as the nature of the resulting salt crytals on the
embroidered surface creates an apt metaphor for the accumulation of stitches, labour and the hours invested in traditional women’s hand work.
Sweetness of the Work is an homage to the salt tears of the seamstress, as if a gentle meditation on the loss of traditional hand skills. It
also speaks to the hierarchical structures that shape our perception of “women’s work” exposing cloth and lace work as a sociopolitical medium
of contemporary relevance.
